Accelerate reading

Reading opens doors to the larger world. Our programs accelerate reading proficiency by grade 3 and enable universal screening for dyslexia risk factors. Through explicit and systematic instruction, students master phonics skills and build comprehension. Scaffolded practice, built-in reinforcements, and cross-curricular connections build students’ self-confidence to support all stages of reading development.

Reading to learn

Strong comprehension skills help students access learning across content areas. As students advance their reading skills and achieve critical milestones, they are exposed to metacognitive strategies through mini tutorials, think-alouds, and guiding questions. Built-in glossaries and dictionaries support vocabulary development, and relevant text passages mirror students’ shared experiences and promote real-world connections.
